Damned Pilots Stream New Song "Gorguss"

Today marks the the release of "Overgalaxy" from Italy's Damned Pilots via Sliptrick Records. To celebrate, the band is streaming the new song "Gorguss." Check it out in the player below.

"Overgalaxy" is a steam punk concept album. As drummer/founder Don Nutz says: "it’s built on the story of four cartoon characters, Don Nutz, Sgt Ote, Willer Hertz and Erik Space …aka The Damned Pilots. They travel through space in the year 2500 A.C. on a 1970’s hippy van customized to fight against their archenemy Gorguss and his evil empire." The lyrics, written by Sgt Ote, are about love and hate, war and peace, past and future, rebellions against failed systems, all imbued with the sensibilities and humor of classic sci-fi b-movies.

The album was been recorded at Track Terminal Studio in Trieste, Italy by Francesco Bardy, except "Just Another Day" and "People Don’t Die," which were recorded at Voodoosound Studios in Ijmuiden, Holland by Paul van Rijswijk. The album was produced by Ron Goudie (Gwar, Death Angel, Poison) and mixed and mastered by legendary producer Bill Metoyer (W.A.S.P., Trouble, Slayer). The artwork has been made by Philippine graphic designer Uzi Emperado.

"Overgalaxy" includes nine songs written by Don Nutz and Sgt Ote and one by Ron Goudie ("Hell Is Cold"). The style varies from mid tempo groovy metal to doom metal plus psychedelics ballads all strung together by catchy melodies. More...
